    Weird as they advertise them there in 19s :think:
    i assume you have called them and asked when they are bringing the 19s in?

    No, I'll give them a ring today. Also I'll have to work out which spacers to use if I put on 225/35/19 with my Eibach Sportlines.

    I'm after changing the centre caps on my 3sdms to some oem Audi caps. They're 70mm outside and 60mm inside, give or take a couple of mm. Any ideas on what ones I'd be able to use?

    You can fit the A6 ones, 8,5x19 ET48, part 4F0601025DE. They won't have the concavity though...

    They're reps of the old RS4 style, likely 18" but hard to tell from the pic. There are about 7,000,000 individual makes and models of this style wheel so pretty hard to distinguish exactly which one they are... try VMW 708s, or look for OEM ones off a TT?

    Or these: Classifieds: 18" A3/A4 S-Line Genuine Wheels

    Definitely not 20", the video is just a bit distorted.

    Also, looking at them again, they look like the A3 S-line ones with fatter spokes (like Rico had on his BE) rather than the more curved RS4s.
